EIVISSA,THE OLD DAYS.

















































Eivissa (Ibiza) the old days were the days of joy where many nationalities joined eachoter in the morning for the famous 'cafe con leche' at the Bar Estrella. The 1930's, 1940's 1950's and early sixties were already quite bohemian and pioneers, writers, painters and other artists were working and enjoying life from the magic white island, way before the hippies came. When talking about the real Ibiza days or, the so called golden epoque or good old days, we are talking about the 1960s and 1970s. Many Ibiza legends and artists will tell you that the best time on Ibiza was from 1966 till maximum 1975. After there was still the post-golden epoque which stopped in 1980 and, 1982 was the end of the whole show as we knew it. American writer Steve Seley was one of the very first personalities to have known the old Ibiza and all its local bars and personalities. Most of the old days 'pioneers and artists' were from English, Irish, Dutch,German and American orgin, followed by other nationalities.
